July 1, 2021. OPAL Fuels LLC, a vertically integrated producer and distributor of renewable natural gas (RNG) for heavy-duty truck fleets, announced a contract with Contract Transport Services (CTS) to sell 15 million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGE) of RNG and construct the station and related infrastructure at CTS’s facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin. TruStar Energy, an OPAL Fuels company, will manage construction and operation of the station.
“Right now, we have over 150 trucks running on public fuel. By contracting with OPAL Fuels to internalize our fueling infrastructure, the new RNG fuel and related infrastructure will save us time, money and significantly reduce our carbon emissions,” said Curt Reitz, President of Contract Transport Services.
CTS began its mission to reduce its carbon footprint in 2013, transitioning to cleaner fuel with the company’s first CNG-powered truck. Today, CTS owns 103 CNG-powered trucks. The company has partnered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a SmartWay affiliate to help reduce GHG emissions and improve fuel efficiency. As a result of its sustainability efforts, CTS won Wisconsin Clean Cities’ 2019 Forward Fleet Award and was named a Top Green Fleet of 2019 by Heavy Duty Trucking.
“CTS’s move to internalize their fueling infrastructure and fuel their trucks with RNG is a smart move. A move the that will reduce their carbon emissions by 132,000 tons” said Adam Comora, Co-Chief Executive Officer of OPAL Fuels.
